What are lookalike audiences?

Lookalike audiences are groups of people who share similar characteristics and behaviors to a brand’s existing customers or audience. Once a lookalike audience is created, it can be used for targeted advertising campaigns on various activation platforms, including Google’s Display & Video 360 (DV360). The idea behind using lookalike audiences is to expand the reach of a campaign to a larger pool of potential customers who are more likely to be interested in the company’s products or services.
